Measuring non-cognitive skills is a proactive practice among educational institutions that is gaining attention. In addition to the traditional cognitive traits such as GPA and standardized test scores, schools are learning the connection between non-cognitive skills and student success. Understanding student learning styles, individual attributes (procrastination, time management, determination) and life factors (time, place, motivation) schools have found a missing piece of the retention puzzle. In addition, schools recognize the need to provide remedial helps for students to help them overcome challenges. SmarterMeasure addresses these issues and more!
